Jeremy Middleton comments on Autumn Statement
ISSUED ON BEHALF OF MIDDLETON ENTERPRISES
Jeremy Middleton, Chief Executive of Middleton Enterprises and Board Member of the North East LEP, said: “The key announcement for me will be an update on the creation of a new, national business bank. The North East is an extremely enterprising region, with strong exports. One of the main constraints of growth in the area is the lack of available finance for business owners who want to invest and grow their companies and difficulties in accessing traditional overdrafts for working capital.
“I would like the Chancellor to take this opportunity reassure North East entrepreneurs that a reasonable amount of available finance from the business bank goes into SMEs in the regions.”
